When Cablevision closed its studio in Lynbrook, it left many communities, including Hempstead< without public access. Residents in this area must travel close to an hour to use the Cablevision public access studio in Suffolk.
We need television, radio, and recording facilities! Because we are still underrepresented in mainstream media, it is extremely important for the community to be able to produce its own media in order to share the positive aspects of living here and to be able train young people interested in this ever growing career field, which is the field of the future.
The space would be available for rental to private organizations, but CBO’s, schools, etc. would be able reserve free studio time.
